Summary

In this revision of their current and scholarly text, authors Eric Mash and David Wolfe achieve a balance between developmental, clinical-diagnostic, and experimental approaches to child and adolescent psychopathology. The book traces the developmental course of each disorder and shows how biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors interact with a child's environment.

  • Each disorder chapter includes an overview of the most empirically supported approaches to intervention, the unique as well as general aspects of major intervention strategies for each disorder, and discussions about risk, protective factors and the conditions that lead to effective coping in some children, despite adverse early circumstances.
  • The authors offer in-depth coverage of the role of the normal developmental process in understanding each disorder and give close attention to important gender differences in the expression, determinants, and outcomes of child and adolescent disorders.
  • The authors address the most current evidence-based treatment approaches, as well as the most promising strategies for prevention, drawing from their collective multidisciplinary knowledge base, including psychology, neuroscience, education, and psychiatry.
  • Visual learning aids such as a variety of artistic cartoons, cases, extracts, and quotes help illustrate key points throughout the text and complement student understanding.
  • Disorders are organized around the DSM-IV (TR) criteria.
  • NEW! Now shorter and more student focused, the second edition of the most successful text in the child psychopathology course offers the latest research and updated content throughout.
  • NEW! Primary improvements to the chapters structure include: terms defined where they appear in the text; guiding, bulleted points for key points in chapters; chapter outlines and interim summaries to help students consolidate a chapter's key concepts; new cases and more pronounced DSM-IV tables for easier reference.
  • NEW! The authors have streamlined their prose resulting in shorter, more accessible chapters. Student reviews helped to refine the book, so it works well with a wide range of students.
